Playa flies in front of the Man

Playaflies by Michael Brown and the Chinchilla camp.­

Check my other photos of the Playa flies.

Playa flies are bicycle mounted color-morphing light sculptures.­ They are made of ping-pong balls attached to wires hanging from a flexible mast attached to a bicycle.­ The ping-pong balls contain color-morphing LED's similar to those used in the cubatron. There were a dozen bicycles equipped like that on the playa.­

Burning Man is yearly gathering of about 70,000 people, many from the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating love, life, passion and art during one week in a desolated desert in Nevada.­

The event takes place each last week of august in an immense dry lakebed called Black Rock Desert.­ A temporary city is built where about everything is permitted except violence, money and commerce.­

The culmination of the event is the burning of a large human-shape figure in a giant bonfire, hence the name (Burning Man).­ The city disappears completely at the end of the week, leaving no trace.­
